For over 25 years now Nyetimber have been showing the way with English sparkling wines. And they produce some of our best fizz in the UK. Their Classic Cuvée blends the trio of Champagne grapes, ageing them on lees. A long, toasty, elegant sparkler.
"World class in every way"
Matthew Jukes The Daily Mail
The Nyetimber estate in Sussex can boast plenty of noble history. There’s mention of it in the Domesday Book in 1086, and Nyetimber was home to Anne of Cleves, fourth wife of Henry VIII. Centuries later, Nyetimber wowed the world after planting Champagne’s trio of vine varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – in 1988 and showing they could ripen in England’s cool climate. At a blind tasting in 1997, the 1992 vintage stunned judges, who assumed it came from Champagne. Since then Nyetimber has won many rave reviews and prizes. All their wines are produced from the 170 hectare estate, owned by Eric Heerema, with Cherie Spriggs as winemaker since 2007. In 2016 Nyetimber was honoured with IWSC’s ‘English Wine Producer of the Year’.

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
